    Great Series. I have watched the Swedish/Danish series wich is equally excellent however people in America can better relate to the Texas/Mexico intrigue that is The Bridge. Diane Kruger, Demián Bichir and Annabeth Gish are top notch in their roles.
    Keep up the good work.

    Yes, It is a tremendous show, It always leaves you enough suspense that you can’t wait for the next episode. As for age I’m in my late 60″s

    Well considering it was taken from a Swedish/Danish TV series, how can it not be good… just like the The Killing also taken from Swedish TV series as was Homeland taken from Israeli TV. The majority of US TV shows are now repetitious and boring. The sitcoms are the same nothing new. But The Bridge the interpretation wasn’t really good. As always if you have seen the originals the pretenders can never ever measure to the originals. Same with music; e.g. the original Hotel California was the best and the acoustic version was was just a money maker for the Eagles!!!!

    So happy that this show was renewed for next season. I too wish other stations would learn how to keep shows. Not sure why they care only about ages 18-49, I watch the same shows in the most part, that my older kids in they’re 30’s watch.

    This show is one of the more intelligent crime dramas out there – SO glad it’s been renewed. Can’t wait to see what Sonya comes out with next.
